rtek 1.7, a wideband, and an safc is a pretty decent setup. the next level would be a standalone lol. but do both, its a good combination.

How is that working out for you?
I'm on the same decision right now.

per the rules I'm not allowed to go stand alone. Well I could but then I would have
to go up a class. I'm staying in the stock class. My only mod will be the
RB Rev II exhaust. Engine is stock. Just rebuilt with all new housings and plates.
I was just going to go with the rtech 1.5. I have no way to control boost
so I was just looking at my best bet for fuel control. With in the rules I can
also use an SAFC. But I like the idea of the rtech 2.1 better which is also within
the rules because it stays in the stock ECU housing and uses the stock ECU
hardware. If I could go stand alone I would.

Or were you refuring to the rtech 2.1?

I kind of consider it a little bit different then a full stand alone replacement ECU.
But not far from it.

i would go with the rtek 2.1 because later on if you want to add more upgrades you can have control over timing.
